We are looking for a Lettings Negotiator to join our Housing Solutions Team, working within Central Suffolk Lettings.

You will be able to demonstrate significant housing knowledge, specifically rentals and lettings, be an effective team player and share our values, commitment and motivation to make a difference for our districts.

As Lettings Negotiator, you will:

  • be dedicated to improving our residents’ access to suitable and affordable accommodation within the Private Rented Sector
  • have a proven track record of working with Private Landlords
  • be passionate about helping people to find a new home
  • need to develop positive relationships with local Landlords and agents to promote the Councils Rent Guarantee and Rent Deposit Scheme.

You should have a comprehensive knowledge of Landlord and Tenant Law and be experienced in advising Landlords on their rights and responsibilities. 

A full driver’s license and access to a car will be required for this role.

*This role is normally based at our modern and conveniently located office accommodation, however, during the Covid-19 pandemic, we have been working from home and it has worked really well for us.

We are proud of the role we play in creating the environment, economy and communities for our districts. Babergh and Mid Suffolk have consistently been voted amongst the top places to live in the UK.

Working together across our Councils and with our partners in the public, private and voluntary sectors, we provide excellent services to our 190,000 residents across Babergh and Mid Suffolk – working hard to provide homes, support our communities, boost local economy, protect our environment and keep our districts clean, tidy and safe.

Our employee benefits include a generous leave entitlement, access to the Suffolk Green Travel Plan, gym discounts and a competitive pension scheme.  We also offer a range of training and development and will give you all the support you need, for your career and wellbeing.

We are committed to agile and flexible working (subject to business need), with full time, part time or job share opportunities considered.  Supporting equality and diversity, Babergh and Mid Suffolk District Councils provide opportunity and ambition for all, enabling and empowering our people to deliver the best possible results for our residents.
